Obama’s commitment to transparency takes a backseat with scandals.

I was thinking that obama using the IRS to go after our Tea Party and hillary covering up for Benghazi were the worst Washington scandals since Watergate. But oh no! Fred was telling me at coffee that FoxNews discovered even a bigger obama scandal! That guy obama, the Commander In Chief of our American armed forces, actually forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn’t get wet! Yes, that’s true! According Marine Corps regulations, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. So what does that guy obama do? Last week, during a press conference under a light drizzle with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, that guy obama allowed his head to be protect from the rain by an umbrella held by a male Marine corporal! OMG! Obama has no respect at all for our military! Obama should immediately apologize to the Marine Corps! Thank you FoxNews for exposing this new scandal! All of you better stay tuned to FoxNews because I am sure there are more scandals to come!

Turns out, as the commander in chief, the President may override those protocols. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/17/was-it-against-uniform-protocol-for-the-marine-to-hold-obamas-umbrella/

If this is true then Fox is sinking even lower by manufacturing news. I wouldn’t know I don’t watch Fox.

All one needs to do is research this just a little bit. It is as snopes says………. political japery. There was even a story that the named Marine [false named by the way] later committed suicide. [ false also ] Boy, what some folks won’t do or say to debase President Obama! Bearing false witness obviously means nothing to some people. By the way there is nothing in the Marine regs that state that a uniformed Marine can not hold an umbrella to protect another.

“scandal du jour”
“Every day it seems another federal agency is exposed…”
O’Reilly is always good for a chuckle or two. It’s really too bad that back when he and Jon Stewart agreed to a televised throwdown on the issues prior to the election that it ended up being more of a *wink-wink* for-entertainment-purposes-only event.
It would have actually been far MORE entertaining if had been a gloves-off, no-holds-barred serious back-and-forth on the issues.
O’Reilly would have difficulty treading water in a high school debate. But hey, he seems to have loyal followers….so that’s something.

The only possible motivation for the IRS scrutinizing Obama’s political opponents is they were ordered to do so by Obama through his political appointee who just resigned. Of course Obama only pays lip-service to transparency because he has everything to lose from the truth.

Really, Mr. O’Reilly? Stonewalling? The only one of the scandals that might apply to is the AP one, and its astonishing you would be upset about it. The administration supposedly gathered the info from the AP reporters to try and track down information leaks about a successful terrorism investigation. And they won’t release more information about it because they claim it is an investigation into *terrorism*. Are you saying you are opposed to this?? You certainly weren’t under Bush.
I know, I know. Benghazi just hasn’t had the effect you hoped for outside of your base (which would hate Obama if he cured cancer). The IRS scandal is certainly upsetting, but of course, your folks behind the scenes don’t want it to be an actual investigation, because then congress might make the rules clearer about what constitutes political activity and there are a lot more right wing groups abusing the 501 c 4 rules than left wing groups (don’t you see Karl Rove frantically giving you the cut sign from behind the camera). Me, I hope the IRS scandal leads to lengthy hearings and eventually some crystal clear rules leading to real investigations into 501 c 4’s — shutting down all those Koch brothers astro-turf organizations.

Since ISSA knew about the IRS investigation last year why did he not bring it up then? Better question is who really gains from bringing down the teanuts? Main line Republicans gain by far more. Teanuts have cost them elections in red states. The teanuts are more organized at the primary/caucuses level than the main line guys are. Get rid of teanuts and make an easier path for the main line Republicans.

I’m not sure the specter of being primaried will disappear if the 501 c(4)’s disappear. That having been said, the only Senate Republican that seems to be in serious danger of such is Lindsey Graham, and he saw it coming a couple of years ago and veered his politics to the right to safeguard his career (why else would he stay at the front of the Benghazi silliness).

No. But it can help to keep them from organizing any media campaigns. The left does not fear the teas since they cannot get elected outside of districts that would vote for the blind, deaf, and three legged dog if it had an r behind its name. Now as you noted about Graham and his shift is because of what you and I said. Like why Did McCain for on the gun bill the way he did and Flake did not vote the same? McCain will be retiring and not running again. But then McCain has always been all over the map switching ideologies as the wind blows. If he does run again he will pretend and deny he voted the way he did, like he has so many times before.

So four senseless deaths in Benghazi with blood on the hands of Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton is just “silliness” to RickM.
